The authors discuss modeling's role in understanding the ice-ocean system, as well as its importance in predicting the future state of Arctic sea-ice. In doing so, this article presents results from a hierarchy of models of different complexity, their strengths and weaknesses, and how they could help forecast the future state of the ice-ocean system.
Index Terms:
